NINJIO S2:E2 The Homeless Homebuyer - PSA

Smita's Housekeeping- How to keep your money safe from cybercriminals at closing. It's a VERY good short video to watch as cybercrime wrt real estate is a billion dollar industry, and title companies have thieves asking them several times a week to send money elsewhere.

If you don't have time to watch the video, remember this:
always call your agent or title company before sending/wiring money for closing;
wires cannot be undone;
agents and title companies- such as Long and Foster and RGS Title will NEVER email you to change wiring instructions.
If in doubt, CALL your agent.

If you are looking for an agent who can take care of you and help make the process easy, call me at 703–307–0217 or pm me. #realtor #longandfoster #findingyourhome

Applying for a mortgage? Shop the rate (and prepare for paperwork if you’re self-employed) | WTOP

It’s getting easier for the growing self-employed population to become approved for a mortgage…slowly but surely! However, if you are self-employed get ready for a lot of additional paperwork! Here’s what to expect:

https://wtop.com/business-finance/2019/03/applying-for-a-mortgage-shop-the-rate-and-prepare-for-paperwork-if-youre-self-employed/

For homebuyers applying for a mortgage, the work starts well before you actually apply for it, and for self-employed mortgage seekers, the work can be even more daunting.

63% of Realtors are women, but that wasn’t always the case! In fact, when the National Association of Realtors was first started its members were 100% men, despite the 3,000 women already working as Realtors across the country. Here’s the little-told story about how women came to dominate the real estate agent profession:

All I am sharing a great interview I had with Arleen Scott, who is the Director at Freedom With Boats. It's an engaging read and good to learn that you can have all the fun of sailing and enjoying the water without having to own a boat with Freedom With Boats. This may also be great if you have clients who want to sail and you are looking for an easy way to make this happen.

I am starting to post my open houses with Facebook live. I’ll let you know in advance when I’m doing a Facebook live open house. Some people don’t understand why an agent would do this. Well, if there are people moving from out of state, or have an activity going on and cannot come in during the open house, or they want to get an idea of the area, I’m providing a resource for them to get to know the area without having to physically be there. We can always schedule a viewing afterwards. If you have any questions, or there’s a specific area you want to know about, don’t hesitate to reach out to me at 703-307-0217, or [email protected]
